    Plowing snow. How about your tips, tricks and advice?

    I run mainly sears in snow. This year I got 1 Sears ready to go and 2 wheel horses. I like sears for the 3 point hitch. I hook grader up and grade snow if its only 3 to 4 inches. Otherwise use dozer blade. I haven't used the 552 yet for plowing snow but debating on modifying it to accommodate the adjuster like 753 has. 753 used to have to use carb cleaner to get it to pop off in cold I put new fuel pump on this year on the 1958 k160 bolens engine that's on the 753. So far so good. But I haven't got to use any this year with snow lol. I go over my machines several times a year but still get breakdowns in winter lol. I usually pile snow very high in piles.and away where you can put more.

    701 getting worked on

    So I parted 2 701s earlier this year that was in poor shape. I kept parts I needed and listed rest. 1 part I kept was toolbox. The original had holes drilled in odd places and was bent good from when original frame snapped on original owner. This toolbox here is pitted but I put new layer of paint down to protect it until I can fix it. I also plan to fix to the dash tower on this one eventually. I got a junker dash tower I can cut to make this one back to original. I can weld it pretty good but that will be later on.

    656 wheel horse with plow repowered

    1966 656 wheel horse On a 1969 workhorse frame New gas line and filter Repowered with a 1989 Briggs 8hp Runs decent does puff a little smoke Just changed oil 300 or best offer very powerful machine plow has been repaired using parts from a toro plow so it has more angles than original

    Easiest way to go is find small power wire on solenoid and check with test light has you turn key. Check fuse too if you have one.
